Well I know who said it - but that's about all I know of this.
With so many trying to call for equality based on nothing but ones feelings I thought I'd put forth a quote from a woman that is truly worthy of more, based on what she has done and stands for. I'll keep her name secret and wait for one of the women on this site to name her, and tell us how she knows her ( just as important as tellling us her name). Please guys and blokes try to let the woman on the site show their knowledge of other great women. Here is her best quote below that describes our own MRA situation to the "T" too.
"People seem to insist on talking - and on carefully saying nothing. The evasiveness, the dullness, the gray conformity of today's intellectual expressions sound like the voices of men under censorship - where no censorship exists. ... The truth about the intellectual state of the modern world, the characteristic peculiar to the twentieth century, which distinguishes it from other periods of cultural crises, is the fact that what people are seeking is not the answers to problems, but the reassurance that no answers are possible."
Well I know who said it - but that's about all I know of this.

Ayn Rand. I knew of her first as an author and later for some of her philosophies.
"Every noble impulse, every unselfish expression of love; every brave suffering for the right; every surrender of self to something higher than self; every loyalty to an ideal; every unselfish devotion to principle; every helpfulness to humanity; every act of self-control; every fine courage of the soul, undefeated by pretense or policy, but by being, doing, and living of good for the very good’s sake—that is spirituality." -David O. McKay
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech
CUJules Maryanne Williamson quotes
"Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals."
"Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace."-Albert Schweitzer
Most people have delusions of adequacy.
"Our presence automatically liberates others". Hah ! What cant. I can imagine Hitler saying the same thing to himself. Just look at the complete cock up Mandela made of South Africa. Behind that particular 'Great man' was Winny Mandela, the schoolboy murderess. He couldn't manage to 'liberate' in his own friggin' house.
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and famous". Well, I guess one out of four was all he aspired to. That and being filthy rich of course.
"We were born to manifest the Glory of God that is within us". And to chuck out white men, presumably, and replace them with Marxist thugs of the 'right' coloured skin and voter intimidation record. What a friggin' hypocrit. God as Lenin's left-hand man.

A Feminist is a human being who has lost her way and turned vicious. If you meet one on the road as you
Go your Own Way, offer kindness but keep your sword drawn.
A unbiased test here shows that Kim knows her women thinkers. How can one speak for women when one doesn't know any great women thinkers and what they said? We have had several generations of women being free to do and study as they please and all we have to show for it is too many only knowing the drama queens on TV.
Good stuff Kim, you do your sex proud!
The truth about the intellectual state of the modern world, the characteristic peculiar to the twentieth century, which distinguishes it from other periods of cultural crises, is the fact that what people are seeking is not the answers to problems, but the reassurance that no answers are possible."
What socialist redundant idiocy!
Of course a percentage of the population seeks to suck the teat of the state, this is 'massively' allayed by those empowered capitalist individuals who ensure their own assurance!
People, don't sub/consciously promote a excusatory strategy before they even begin. This is gullible exploitative ground for big government to interject and take over because apparently individuals aren't capable of mapping out their own destinies.
There's also elements of nihilism and negative inevitability (fatalism?) that isn't necessarily conducive to the positive progressions of the mens movement.
"but the reassurance that no answers are possible." Thank fuck our forefathers never adopted this self-defeating twaddle!

The wicked flee when none pursueth. Proverbs 28:1
'Rise like Lions after slumber In unvanquishable number - Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you - Ye are many - they are few.'
Percy Bysshe Shelley
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. "
The internet has been a lifeboat for men's opposition to the floodings of feminism.
